Sea Trout Flies
I think that it would be true to say that Iíve spent more time fishing for these ďmischievousĒ fish than any other. I fish for them nearly entirely at night.

They are a very shy fish during the day, but they take on a new lease of life when darkness comes. I use a sink-tip line with either 2 or sometimes 3 flies (depending on wind). My biggest white trout to date is just over 3 lb, although, I do believe that Iíve lost bigger! Some big fish enter our rivers in the middle of May, and it is at this time of year when Iíve lost a couple of big fish. Then towards the end of June they start arriving in greater numbers, and usually continue right till the end of August. At night, when heading out to fish for white trout, my fly box always contains this selection of flies. It is also worth saying that fishermen fish with these flies all over Ireland to catch white trout.
